It's the biggest legal moment to date in the #MeToo movement.
Opening arguments are set for today in New York for the Harvey Weinstein rape and sexual assault trial.
The disgraced movie producer is charged with raping one woman and sexually assaulting another. Weinstein has insisted that all his sexual interactions with women were consensual.
And his attorneys have told the judge they plan to use what they call intimate emails from the accusers to support that claim. The trial is expected to last six weeks.
